Method :

  • Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon together, toss in the butter, then rub in until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the marmalade, egg and most of the milk, then stir into the flour mixture to make a soft dropping consistency, adding more milk if necessary.
  • Transfer the mixture to the tin and bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until firm to the touch. Leave the cake to cool for 5 minutes, then turn on to a wire rack, peel off the lining paper, and leave to cool completely.
  • Drizzle the glace icing over the top of the cake and decorate with the orange and lemon rind.
